As Nicole Lewis drove along the serene road near Avery Lake, her attention was abruptly captured by an unexpected sight. Two lynxes were engaged in what appeared to be a heated territorial dispute. Little known to the people, these beautiful wild animals are spotted rarely in Michigan. Still, they are quite common in Ontario’s Dinorwic Region, close to where these two were spotted by Lewis.

You will find this interaction shocking if you know anything about lynxes -these adorable-looking animals solitary in nature.

Lynxes are like the detectives of the animal world – super curious, love their alone time, and treasure their personal space. They enjoy figuring things out and gathering info like folks with Enneagram Type Five personalities.

The video is amazing, and the comments section has great interpretations that make this even more entertaining. If you actually see the video, the argument between the two feels like the left one is basing the arguments on some actual scientific journals and not just some pseudo-science. In fact, to a certain extent, these lynxes sound like humans pretending to be cats.

Not gonna lie; it sounds like two drunk people fighting over the last bottle of whatever’s making them drunk.


The lynx encounter serves as a testament to the unpredictability and richness of nature, where every moment holds the potential for discovery and awe. As the two lynxes continued their vocal and clawed dance by the roadside, Nicole Lewis’s camera captured a brief yet mesmerizing chapter in the untold story of the wild.
